day of protest in egypt, president obama had a talk with president mubarak. president obama told the egyptian leader that an orderly transition cannot be prolonged. it must begin now. that was after mubarak announced he would not seek re-election. christiane amanpour is on the ground. >> reporter: very few people thought a week ago that president mubarak would offer these con sengss, professions to lift the state of emergency and reform the election law. but is it enough for the people? they can see the end in sight. it's very unclear whether they will let him finish his term. this was the scene on cairo's square after president mubarak announced after 30 years after one-man rule, he was ready to leave office. i never asked to be a dictator, he said, and i will not be dominating myself for a new term for i have served egypt long enough though, the crowd became defiant again when mubarak said he was going stay on for a few more months to ensure law and order, to reform the constitution and the election process. president obama had this to see. >> the people of egypt, the young peo

's senior white house correspondent ed henry kicks off our coverage. president obama just passed the two-year mark in office. is he likely to face a liberal primary challenge? >> well, that's a big question for this president. and the new cnn opinion research corporation poll suggests he is highly unlikely to face a primary challenge. that would be good news, obviously, for this white house. look at these numbers. 78% of democrats now saying that their choice for the democratic nomination in 2012 is president obama. only 20% saying they want another democrat. now why is that important? since 1968, there have been four incumbent presidents who faced a primary challenge. all four either stepped aside, retired, didn't run again, or just lost outright lost in the general election. this is a big deal. if he does not have a primary challenge, it makes him a lot stronger in 2012. >> the republicans, seems like a wide open field of candidates. have they come anywhere close to unifying behind just one? >> reporter: no. they are nowhere close to being unified behind a candidate but what is interes

objection. mr. demint: thank you, mr. president. this week, president obama gave a speech about health care, or actually i guess it was last week now. the speech was at a fancy hotel near washington, and he told jokes to make everyone laugh and sad stories to endear his audience further to his cause. the president said, as he has many times before, his law will lower the cost of health care. president obama knows how to give a good speech and he also knows how to tell it like it isn't. while president obama was busy selling his policies on the stump, others were busy analyzing the real effects of his health care law. it's not limiting cost. now, we heard some of the figures given by the democrats here from the congressional budget office but we have to expose that they're really playing with numbers. if you tell the congressional budget office to take $500 billion from medicare that's already bankrupt and can't pay doctors to see patients, but you take $ 500 billion and call that savings that are created by obama-care -- that's part of where they get their money. the other part is to raise
and then we simply have to repeal president obama, we can do that and get a new president in that wants to get rid of the government takeover of health care, that will change. martha: she makes it sound sieveem. not so simple, though, her comments after the first nationwide tea party town hall meeting where she called for the end of big government and big spending. bill: keeping an eye on the markets, what a run we've had here, ahead of the opening bell, investors hoping to extend a seven-day streak of gains. wow. yesterday, dow closed up 71 points, well over 12,200. look at her go, huh? we'll see how the markets do, bottom of the hour, 9:30. martha: how about the weather? how about back to the weather for a moment? it just gets crazier out there, just with states like oklahoma and kansas at -- what states like oklahoma and kansas do not need. more snow is headed their way. they have had the most awful, icy conditions, accidents that we've seen over the past couple of weeks and now they're getting more of it. look at the radar, the midwest and parts of the south, already getting covered, oklah
or is that not fair? >> i'm not a big fan of the obama administration, but i was marginally involved in discussions during the presidency of george w. bush about egypt, because they wanted to push egypt toward reform and nudge hosni mubarak toward reform. they were very concerned about the ways of hosni mubarak. and in the end, they pulled back from it. so i think there's plenty of blame to go around. this is a man who has been in power from reagan to obama. he's known five presidents, and he's picked the pocket and stiffed five presidents in a row. this kind of guessing who lost egypt and who should have known, i am really not interested in it. i wrote a lot about egypt trying to underline the troubles of the mubarak regime. it's really not about this debate in washington. it's really about this revolution in egypt and whether we go and embrace it and proclaim it and accept it as a legitimate revolution that a free people are entitled to. >> david, given the history with egypt, the american support of the mubarak regime for 30 years, how in your opinion have they been playing this, mixed messages

for my payment. >> well, david, that happens quite often and president obama called me about 4:30 this morning. it wasn't president obama. it was obama. it was donny down in the lobby trying to get in. got another one. >> william writes never too early to play the mike barnicle drinking game. one shot of tequila for every time he has peetz-er or obama-er. two shots every time he says mika. >> when mika plays the game she has to go to two bottles of aleve as soon as she finishes playing that game. thank you very much. "morning joe" starts right now. >> sooner or later, the media stops finding it interesting. >> not the liberal bastards on msnbc. >> but yeah, who watches that. i went on "morning joe" this morning but i like it just because i like being combative with those guys. you know, they're awful. >> joe's a good guy. he's one of us. >> he's all right. he was fair to me. i had fun. they had schumer over from new york on ripping me and then they had a little clip of a state senator hiding out ripping me. it was almost too easy. >> beautiful, beautiful. you have to love that
